I remain my loyalty for Avon for over ten years. I have tried at least 50 kinds of Avon products. The reason behind this is i trust its quality compared to other domestic brands. I have no faith in other local brands. Unlike those, some of Avon's treatment products work well.

i understand your loyalty for avon, tudors. it is wise to keep on using the products which is taken kindly by your body. allergies can develop if the products which do not suit your skin is being applied to it. and, to think that allergies can do much harm to the skin and, to think that allergies are so difficult to treat yet. this all doubles up for the reason behind the need to stick to products that one has proven to be the best one there is for oneself.

I love make-up so I like to try all different brands pricey and not so pricey. When I was in highschool I used jane for my foundation, then I progessed to cover girl and now i use bareminerals for my foundation. I love bareminerals. I aslo like Stilla and Lola. I like there lip glosses and eyeshadow. I also love covergirls proffessonal mascara.

I think I did use covergirl for pressed powder twice. It was good. I also used to get their mascara, but it's just too weird. Like it won't come off my lashes and I get this raccoon look the morning after. I've been going nuts on what mascara to use. And now I've stumbled onto clinique or prescriptives. I did L'Oreal, Maybelline...what other brand for mascara? Man...and didn't have a perfect effect that I needed and wanted.

Sometimes the cover girl proffessonal mascara does the racoon thing to me to when I wash my face in a hurry at night, but..ugh I can't remember the name of the mascara but its by cover girl and its in a purple dispinser, its a good one and it comes off easier than the proffesonal one

Hello! Okay, here goes... Revlon = mineral blush; L'Oreal = mineral blush, mineral powder foundation; Estee Lauder = mascara; Clinique = lip slick gloss; Bath & body works = flavored lip glosses. Most of my items are mineral make-up which my skin takes on so well... Have a good day! :)

I used to go on the Mineral make up wagon. But since I read the ingredients now, and I did use L'Oreal's mineral foundation. It does have talc, which just voids the fact that it's "mineral" in the first place. Mineral won't consist of talc, coz that is a supposed harsh chemical. So I don't use that anymore now. I do use Bath and Bosy works' lip balms, like CO Bigelow ultra mentha lip shine. I LOVE that! That's the only lip balm that I use

I'm not so familiar with these brands, I am familiar however with Amway and olay. I have hypoallergenic skin and olay didn't give me a good effect.

i do not use makeup at all. lotions, yes. and as for lotions, i use nivea for my body. for the face it is pond's and olay. i bought a pressed powder though some months ago, it is pond's. still, i use it very occasionally. thus, bottomline, it is still not fully consumed to this day. perhaps, pressed powder and foundation creams are necessary to have for ladies. however, i just couldn't get myself to use them habitually. i always go out of the house with just simply a washed face.

Good for you. For me, if I don't have any pressed powder on my face I feel like it's either getting too oily or too dry. And this depends on the weather. Plus, when you are a professional, it's best to look your best. And I've been in training a lot of times, that you do need that and they do insist on it. Coz at a certain age, it will keep you looking your age or younger. For some people who overly uses it, makes them look like a clown. And for some that won't use it at a certain age, they look at least a decade older! I don't use pond's I'm allergic to that brand. I used to use Olay for moisturizers, but they have this weird smell and my face got too greasy. You should moisturize your face though, right now you might be what? In your teen years or early twenties? You might not notice it, but if you keep on doing that, the sooner you will have wrinkles.
